How does Google Photos recognize the real date the photo was taken
1

I uploaded to Google Photos a photo taken in Florida with NIKON COOLPIX S3500 (without GPS).
Whe I took the photo, the time zone of the camera was still Italian and the DateTimeOriginal of the photo (also verifying with Exiftool) it is 30-June-2015 at 03:57.
But after uploading to Google Photos, the photo is listed under the date 29-June-2015 (although the Google Photos information on the date of the photo still looks like: 30-June-2015 03:57).
In reality the photo was taken in Florida on 29-June-2015 at 21:57.
How does Google Photos recognize the real date the photo was taken (29-June-2015) when the photo file shows DateTimeOriginal = 30-June-2015?
